Banned Books Week 2017
September 24, 2017 All Week
Mounce Library and Ringer Library both have Banned Books Week displays featuring books that have been challenged and/or banned.
Banned Books Week is an annual celebration of the freedom to read, and it is usually held the last week in September. Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. This celebration brings together readers, writers, librarians, booksellers, publishers, English teachers, and more.
